16 Weeks

March 22, 2012

 How far along? 16 weeks. Baby is the size of an avocado. 
Maternity clothes? Not yet. I need to start shopping around for some cute stuff to wear to work.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: Pretty good....I get up once to use the bathroom.

Best moment this week:  Telling our neighbors our news and some more people at work....everyone is so excited!
Miss Anything? I can't think of anything I miss this week.
Movement: Nope.
Food cravings: Still the same favorites this week: pickles, raspberries, and cottage cheese. Oh and root beer floats....which we had last night!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat, carrots, and broccoli. And Greek yogurt still makes me queasy whenever I think about it. And with all this talk about avocados this week I think I can also add them to sick list.
Gender: We have to be super patient and wait until I'm 20 weeks....seems so far away!
Labor Signs: Way too early.
Symptoms: I'm a little tired and have a sore throat....but no complaints here since I feel SO much better than I did a few weeks ago.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Good
Looking forward to:  Painting the nursery, buying our crib, and testing out strollers.

  1. meat made me sick for the first like 25 weeks, too!

  2. Ooh! Have fun stroller testing! I remember it being so overwhelming... There are so many to choose from!! They're all different, and good... You need one with snow tires I think!

  3. such a fun time - good luck with the stroller testing... it took us awhile to find the perfect one, hah.

  4. Yay for 16 weeks, it will go by slow at first and then faster than you think! you look great!

  5. You Look beautiful! Enjoy every single day of it. Don't Worry before you know it you'll be @ 20 weeks!

  6. You are looking great, lady! I'm sure it's sooo exciting to be finding out in a few "short" weeks the gender!

  7. I can't get over how cute your chalkboard pictures are! Absolutely beautiful! So glad you are feeling better!

  8. Food aversions are just the worst! I feel you! And don't worry, you'll find out the gender before you know it! It feels like FOREVER ago that we found out and then I realize it was only 8 weeks ago. Wow!

  9. Love these - have fun shopping for maternity clothes! I am 25 weeks and getting so excited for our 32 to get here. Congrats!

  10. You look so cute with your little bump! I'm dreading this food aversion stuff. I'll be the chick to yack in the grocery store when I catch a scent of a certain food. I can't wait to see the nursery! And find out the sex, of course.

  11. You look beautiful.......I'm hoping for a little red headed baby girl!!

  12. You may have already done this, but I suggest taking a recorder of some sort to your next appointment to record the heartbeat. You will want that sound. We actually did it with 3 build a bear recorders (they sell them without the bears) and then got the bears and "It's a girl" shirts for the grandmas and one for the baby. It is her favorite bear:o)

    I was very excited to read your good news (did you know the photos are gone?)!!

  13. Love these chalkboard updates and love Stacie's idea above, that would be sweet.
